IBC’s BioProcess International conference and Exhibition has become the largest, most well-respected forum that focuses solely on technical, regulatory, and strategic planning challenges in the manufacture of biotherapeutics. This event is truly the place to gain the latest industry updates, make new contacts and initiate collaborations in biopharmaceutical production. Why? Four comprehensive tracks will update your knowledge in all areas of bioprocessing at one outstanding forum

Managing Manufacturing Networks: Maximize your present and future facilities from experience with biodefense, subcutaneous high dosing, high-titer projects, and many other cutting-edge case studies and strategies.

Product Lifecycle Management: Learn to use design space strategy to leverage flexibility, mitigate variability, and continuously improve your process.

Cell Culture and Upstream Processing: Hear what comes next after titers increase as companies demonstrate approaches to accelerate process development and control costs while improving quality in upstream processing.

Recovery and Purification: Evaluate and explore the latest breakthroughs to debottleneck downstream capabilities with next-generation purification technologies.

Intimate break-out discussions ensure the direction of your career and your company projects: Managing Partners and Contractors (Practical Solutions to the Issues that Arise); Manufacturing (What Will Take Us to the Next Level of Efficiency and Economics?); Smart Flexibility (What Creates the Right Degree of Flexibility and Cost Reduction in Different Phases of Manufacturing); and Development and Manufacturing Strategies for Biosimilars Products.

Roundtable discussion groups will focus on continuous disposable multicolumn chromatography (emerging technology to enable more efficient downstream processing).
